The laboratory was established in 2022 to conduct research in ecology and geography. In its approaches, the team merges experimental methods of ground-based measurements of ecosystem functioning with the math-based methods of remote sensing (RS) data processing.
The main goal is to develop a set of approaches for RS data processing that will allow to use them most effectively as a source of information about landscape structure and organisation. Thereby, the key research focus of the lab is to develop methods for:
Scientific Seminar "Analysis of the Spatial Distribution of Trees in the City of Moscow According to the Register of Green Spaces"
From May 10 to May 24, 2023, the International Laboratory of Landscape Ecology is holding a series of seminars on the topic “Methods for assessing the climate-regulating functions of landscape cover”. On May 10, 2023, the first seminar of the series was held, at which Renata Zigangirova, an intern researcher of the laboratory, made a report
Students are invited to take a summer internship in 2023
The application of the Laboratory "Biophysical functions of South Taiga landscapes based on experimental and remote measurements" was supported by the competition commission of the program to attract Russian postdocs for the 2023/2024 academic year.
On January 27-29, 2023, the International Conference «Machine Intelligence for GeoAnalytics and Remote Sensing» (MIGARS) Was Held
The key organizer was the IEEE international engineering society. The purpose of the event is to create a communication platform for representatives of dynamically developing high-tech branches of science. Despite the event was held for the first time, it was attended by academia and business from two dozen countries.
February 11, starting from 2016, is observed as the Day of Women and Girls in Science. Employees of the International Laboratory of Landscape Ecology, Natalia Shartova and Anna Derkacheva, shared their research, discussed the challenges in their work, and answered the question of whether anyone can pursue a career in science.
At the end of January 2023, the first lectures were held as part of the course. Natalia Shartova, a leading researcher of the International Laboratory of Landscape Ecology, spoke about the evolution of the concepts of morbidity and mortality, about modern global health threats and about the basic concepts of epidemiology. In practical classes, students tried their hand at analyzing the changes taking place using the international system for assessing the global burden on health.
